you might want to check out the sticky in the forced induction section. It will clear up most if not all your questions about n2o. but i prefer a wet due to the whole "no fuel return line" thing, a 50-55 shot no problem, no need to retard timing for that, deffinately run high octane, go with a NX or ZEX wet kit both pretty sweet, if you wanna run a 75 shot you should pull a few degrees of timing and look into up grading your fuel system. A 75 shot MIGHT tap out the stock system. Get a heater, a WOT switch, fuel pressure switch, and for good measure an rpm switch. I've got my kit all planed out but still saving up for the purchase... not to mention I still have to convince the wife.

not worth it man. the dry kit will lean out your car and cause more damage than it will make power. get a wet shot
